Hey everyone, bit of an abstract question I know, but I'm just curious about the 'defenders of empire' tag often applied to the soldiery. Was there an increased and general expectation that the private soldier would personally embrace the principles of imperial expansion? After all, until the Battle of Isandlwana, very few people seem to have been aware of events in Zululand!

I expect every soldier was expected to embrace the principles of imperial expansion. Whether or not they did would have to be down to the individual soldier.
Some idea of the British 'imperial development across the globe' under Victoria can be judged from reading a list of the 'small colonial wars' (as they have euphemistically been called) undertaken during Victoria's reign:


Anti-colonial revolt in Canada, 1837
Capture of Aden, 1838
First Afghan War, 1838-42

War in the Levant, 1840
War in Afghanistan, 1842
Conquest of Sind, India, 1843
Gwalior War, India, 1843
First Sikh War, India, 1845-6
Against Native Africans, South Africa, 1846-52
North-West Frontier of India, 1847-54
